Update:High Court rules Reserve Decision. The final decision will be made in a week at the earliest, July at the latest. This is actually a good thing since it means the decision did not definitely go against Undershaw. I suspect building increased awareness of the support for Undershaw would be helpful, folks, so let’s keep tweeting, posting, Liking, asking your local media to cover the story, and making a bit of a fuss (albeit politely).
Update Link:The Telegraph has a nice article and video with Mark Gatiss regarding the Save Undershaw campaign.
It’s appalling that Arthur Conan Doyle’s home is at risk of demolition. Sherlock Holmes is as iconic a character worldwide as Ebenezer Scrooge and has, in fact, appeared directly or indirectly in more creative work than any other English author’s including Scrooge.
